If you have benign moles on your body that you are tired of looking at, there are a number of removal options available. While going to a professional is always a great choice, there are home remedies you can use as well. Using castor oil to remove moles is not only effective, it’s very affordable. You can try this at home to see if it works for you, just make sure the mole is benign before you begin.

In order to get started you will need:

  • Castor oil
  • Cotton towel

This is actually all you need, besides some patience throughout the process. Generally it is going to take at least a few weeks in order for the mole to be fully removed. This is a natural process, which is why it takes so long. Some mild discomfort is to be expected as well, but nothing too hard to deal with.

Step 1: Wash Mole

Wash your mole and the area around it gently with some warm water and mild soap. Once finished, pat the skin dry with a towel that is soft and clean. Don’t put on any face products after this, especially to the mole surface.

Step 2: Apply Oil

Grab a cotton swab and soak it in some of the castor oil. Once you do this, cover your mole with the cotton until it has covered the entire surface. Leave this on until it dries and don’t wash it off. You can put skin care products on the rest of your skin, just not the mole.

Step 3: Repeat

Repeat this twice per day, preferably once in the morning and once in the evening. You should continue doing this until the mole develops a scabby surface and starts to peel. From here you will start to see it diminish within a short amount of time. It does take a while for this to work, but it is worth the wait!

There are a lot of variations of this technique out there on the Internet. One includes using a can of soda in addition to the castor oil. The acids in the soda help to remove the mole more quickly. This isn’t always effective for some people, but has been shown to work for others.

Once the mole has been removed and the scabs have fallen off, there should be no scar left behind. Of course if someone chooses to pick at the scabs, they might run into problems. It’s best to let the skin heal itself to avoid any issues in the future. According to this mole removal website, this is a 100% natural method that will not har, your skin.

Castor oil is natural and can be found bottled up at most grocery stores. Health food stores also might have organic versions of it. The cost is significantly cheaper when compared to getting mole removal at a doctor’s office. It is just important to have the mole inspected by a doctor before removing at home.
